The East End Film Festival (EEFF) opens on the 3rd July with a tribute to unique musical talent, Amy Winehouse. EEFF is held in London’s East End and attracts an audience of around 30,000 people annually, making it one of the UK’s largest film festivals. The rich and diverse programme aims to discover, support and exhibit pioneering work by local and independent film makers.
The Amy Winehouse film ‘The Day She Came to Dingle’ combines never- before- seen concert and archive footage, offering a glimpse into the world of a true musical icon. The film explores her deep affection for jazz, soul and gospel and contains footage of arguably one of her best ever performances. The performance was recorded back in 2006 in an atmospheric church in the small Irish fishing village of Dingle shortly before she gained international fame.The screening will take place in beautiful, gothic Hawksmoor Church of St. Anne’s in Limehouse, and will be supported by an evening of live music, cocktails and an after party.

After much consideration and with the blessing of Amy’s family, Fred Perry has decided to release the AW11 Amy Winehouse for Fred Perry Collection. Amy was passionate and dedicated to the collaboration and her signature style is clearly stamped across each piece. In such circumstances, Amy’s royalties and fees from both collections will be donated to the soon to be established Amy Winehouse Foundation. Fred Perry will also make a seasonal donation to the Foundation.
Amy's father Mitch Winehouse has said: "When Fred Perry came to us to ask what we would like to do with the new collection it was natural to continue. Amy loved working on both collections and would want them to be made available. All the money we make and the donation that Fred Perry will give will go straight into to the Amy Winehouse Foundation which we are setting up to help children and young people in her name."
